Today is my birthday, and so far it’s been lovely. But every year, my (wonderful, well-intentioned) ADHD partner Jen waits until the last minute to pull together a nice day for me. She always comes through, but not without a fair amount of scrambling. Here’s what I mean… ADHD Birthday Obstacle #1: The Gift Jen […]

Just over a week ago, there was big news around here in the New York metropolitan area. The Stony Brook Seawolves baseball team, based at Long Island’s Stony Brook University, advanced to the College World Series, making them the first Northeast Region school in history to do so. To call them underdogs would be an […]

Earlier this week, I received the following email from reader Maryellen: My husband was diagnosed with Adult ADD approximately 4 years ago and I found a blog entry on the internet that comes to mind almost weekly. It had to do with responding to your ADD/ADHD partner’s random declaration of thoughts and how to be […]

It’s been well established that in a mixed-ADHD relationship (where one partner has ADHD and the other does not), there are certain compromises that need to be made in order for the partnership to feel balanced. For example, someone without ADHD may dislike washing dishes, but they do it anyway;  someone with ADHD may dislike […]

Being married to someone with ADHD is a lot of fun, but sometimes it forces you to take matters into your own hands. Jen and I both switched from BlackBerry to iPhone a couple of months ago, and we both have protective cases by Otterbox on our new phones. You may or may not know […]

One day I was out running errands, and I had some time to kill before an appointment. I decided to hit the dollar store and have a look around. Now, I can do some serious damage in a dollar store to begin with. But when I spotted this decorative tile, I nearly died. It’s a […]

In a talk that my friend and ADHD expert Dr. Ari Tuckman gave awhile back, he offered this piece of advice to adults with ADHD: “Give yourself less to worry about by being diligent and setting yourself up for success. Like the Boy Scouts,” he said, “be prepared.” I hear from a lot of significant […]

I’m going to be totally honest with you. My ADHD partner and I have a wonderful marriage. But like all couples, we fight. And yesterday, we had a big fight. “Oh my God,” you’re thinking. “Erin must have wrecked the car…or maybe Jen completely forgot about something really important…” Rest assured, it was nothing like […]

As dearly as I love my partner Jen (we celebrated our 10 year anniversary this past weekend), some of her ADHD tendencies drive me a little nuts. Over the past couple of years, Jen has been feeding an obsession with serial fiction. It started, as many things do these days, with vampires. I’ll get to […]

People often ask us which term is correct: ADD, ADHD, or AD/HD? The official term currently used by the American Psychiatric Association is ADHD. In 1980, the DSM-III (a manual for doctors) introduced ADD (Attention-Deficit Disorder) with or without hyperactivity. In 1987, it was changed to ADHD. Then, in 1994 with the publication of the […]
